September 2019 street view shows boarded up front with part of the upper facade removed on the right.
That’s an old picture as well.
Building is for sale on loopnet:
The Center theatre listed above at 6540 Woodward was located South of the Boulevard (west-east grand blvd), and was converted to retail space in the late 40’s. The Regent theatre @ 7314 Woodward was renamed the “Center” in 1961, and retained that name until it was demolished in 1975. The two theatres were only a few blocks apart, and both were named “center” as they were located in what is still called the new center area of Detroit.
The Center was open in the 60’s because I distinctly remember it as being one of the few theatres open for a certain movie that I wanted to see. It is not in existance now, but it was most definately open in the 60’s.
